The Deciding Factor

The deciding factor.
What exactly is the deciding factor when choosing between your heart and your head?
I'm not really sure.
But I can't sit in the hallway forever.
As much as I'd like to...
I've been sitting in this damn hallway for exactly a month today.
And I need to choose sometime soon.
I just hope I make the right decision.

I started the final save exactly twenty-four hours after I started this picture. I spent about eight hours of work on it. The only photos were a door, a frame, and a girl, the rest was painted. It was 4500x2844px at the original size.

Stock was from seaoffirestock and Please full view to see the text, you won't get it if you don't.

I haven't heard from you in ages! How are you?

and the doors may be doors of perception.

Hard to make a decision.
Anyhow, nice work, composition, colours and all.

About your avatar. Forgive me, but I think it's a bit offensive. Well, most of the people are lonely now. They just don't go around offending people about not caring about them. That's just my point of view.

Anyhow, I like your work, I like it a lot.
Wish you sucess.

You're not being serious about my avatar, are you?
lightbird's avatar
I wasn't that sure how to take it.
Some like me might take it as an offense.

It was made to be a joke. Humorous.
Did you read the entire thing?

Aww, you have no idea how much I love this piece! And I am one of those people myself that just cannot decide all times.. And as the model int he photo you used, I am relaly pleased to see this great results, it is no doubt one of the best pieces I have seen made with mine and ~SeaOfFireStock's stock! Just awesome! And I love that you painted most parts, and did not just use photos!

Beautiful manipulation and such a timeless concept. I love how it all blends so well together, and the labels on the doors are brilliant. Does the picture in the hall have any significance?

I go through this kind of dilemma periodically because my heart generally disagrees with my head. :confused:
sammigurl61190's avatar
The symbol in the picture is kind of like my version of an equal sign, but not so plain. :)
racehorse87-stock's avatar
Aaaah, that makes much sense. It certainly is prettier than the plain old equals signs I use in math. :giggle:

A lot of time spent, but well worth it. If you are seriously contemplating on the decision of your heart or your mind, go with your heart. In the end, you will realize how happy you are and your mind will be at rest (because usually the decision your mind wants you to make is for someone else, not yourself) - little bit of phycology for you there! Great work! :)
sammigurl61190's avatar
Actually, when it comes to my decision, the head would be better for me in the long run, most likely. That's why it's so hard.
teenytyne's avatar
but then again, regret is the worst feeling of human nature. but it also depends on your situation.

*love love LOVE*!!! It's so beautiful! And what is decision over?
abuseofreason's avatar
It's very beautiful, well done! You obviously put a lot of time into those details and it shows! The only thing I could suggest is the lighting on the girl seems a tad off...she doesn't seem to blend as well into the scene as I'd like. But, that is also minor and you did a fantastic job on it.
